What not to say to a friend experiencing a mental health problem.

21 Dec 2018

Just snap out of it.

Get over yourself.

You need to get out more.

It's all in your mind.

But you have nothing even to worry about.

Stop complaining all the time.

I always knew you had a problem.

There is nothing even wrong with you.

Stop looking for attention.

You don't look anxious or depressed.

You are not pushing yourself enough.

It sounds like you're going crazy.

You need to stop feeling sorry for yourself.

No one ever said life was fair.

You are always so negative.

It's your own fault. Things could be so much worse.

With thanks to Suicide Awareness and Prevention

Hopeful One
